Tech Racing makes some in various colors and sized that will match the Surikarn and Hara perfectly. dark blue and purple.
approx $6.00 pr.
unfortunately they are made of aluminum..
Schumacher sells Purple Ti Ti-rods for the Mi2EC....they might work and they are close to the same purple color as HB/HPI uses.

i got one from tower and it arrived really fast and i am in canada like you its pretty safe to order from there .

I've replaced mine with the shock collar from the Pro-4 that has the O-rings and they look better...they're purple.

ewww...the pro4 parts are heavier!




hahah, personally i like the black collars, you can do something like put a TINY bit of silicone on the thread, as an alternative.

I'll have to find some RIT dyes that matches the hpi/HB purple..and dye those delrin spurs.

Someone know if the Cyclone black edition will be updated as the Hara and Surikarn edition? (With new alluminium diff and reinforced upper bulkhead?)

Thanks
